Conventional accounts of the expansion of international society associated with the English School of International Relations have been criticized for their euro-centrism. This edited volume draws on these critical insights, in order to understand how the expansion of international society has been experienced by states lying at the peripheral space between Western Europe and Russia. The volume adopts a socio-historic conceptualization of entry into international society, and explores the impact of identity-constructions and collective memories on the expansion of international society. It will interest graduates and scholars of European IR, particularly those with a focus on Eastern Europe.
